The Independent National Electoral commission (INEC) has announced that 17 political factions have submitted names of their aspirants ahead of the governorship election scheduled for October 10 in Ondo State.

The commission’s spokesperson, Festus Okoye said the list and credentials of the 17 candidates would be uploaded on its website and published in its state office in Akure on Friday, July 31.

Members of the public who have reasonable grounds to believe that any information given in the affidavit or any of the documents submitted by any of the candidates is false, have been asked to seek redress in court.

Okoye said;

“Seventeen out of the 18 registered political parties gave the commission the requisite statutory notice of their intention to conduct primaries and they conducted primaries for the purpose of nominating candidates for the governorship election.

“By section 31 (5) & (6) of the Electoral Act, a person who has reasonable grounds to believe that any information given in the affidavit or any of the documents submitted by any of the candidates is false, may file a suit in Court seeking a declaration that such information is false.

“If the Court determines that the information is false, the Court shall issue an Order disqualifying the candidate from contesting the election.”
